Happy 2012!!! City Crawler; Back and better

Happy New Year to all my Dearies. 

Yes I know it’s more than 43 days gone into the New Year but since this is my first blog post of the year, it’s in order.

My last post was a while back, I apologize. Old woman like me(LOL) I took a short hiatus to go back to business to learn the rudiments of business because I found out the hard way that sometimes passion, determination and drive, although important, are not quite enough.

When I say I learnt the hard way, I mean every word. I ventured into business in 2008 and I became quite the serial entrepreneur, it was nice and fulfilling you know but the millions were not rolling in because there was no proper structure. Things came to a head in April 2011 when my biggest investment went down the drain mainly because I took a sensitive business risk based on personal reasons. I hadn’t really recovered but I was so eager to go back to business. Not so easy. The obstacles of starting again stared at me.

But you can’t keep a good woman/man down. I admit I was depressed at my loss for a while, who wouldn’t be. All my money gone, the time invested etc. it felt like adopting a child and loosing it after only a few months. Luckily for me I had the right kind of support to see me through; I picked myself up, dusted myself and carried on.

I was very lucky to find a business school in Abuja that really suited my schedule at the time, because it catered to CEOs of already existing business. If you haven’t already heard about it, it’s the Enterprise Development Center of the Pan African University. Also under the Pan African Uni is a Graduate business school; the Lagos Business School (LBS) and the Graduate School of Media and Communication(SMC), (at my graduation ceremony I noticed Wale Adenuga Jnr and Helen Paul of Jara graduating from this unit).

The 30 days which luckily was spread out to a 3month period was extremely enlightening. By the end of the first day, I knew what I had been doing wrong all along. By the time I encountered Mr. Mark George, aka OMG the Strategy facilitator, I had started asking myself some difficult questions and making personal and corporate changes. It is true that people make it happen and Mrs Omotosho with her awesome style of delivery really hit the nail on the head, just two of the very strategic and helpful modules of the Certificate in Entrepreneurial management (CEM)

Long story short, I am back in business. With a double dose of passion, drive, determination, vision and confidence that I am going to make it this time armed with my newly acquired knowledge and of course God by my side.

I am one of the lucky few; some people fall down and stay down because they are too afraid or too embarrassed to show their faces. But like the saying goes, “don’t give up, if you try and don’t succeed, try try again.

Ill Definitely recommend the Certificate of Entrepreneurial Management course to anyone who wants to venture into serious business that will even outlive them, the school is also great for networking purposes as I made lifelong friends and business partners amongst my classmates.

    Nonetheless, during days gone by, this sets of rules wasn't made to think of citizens looking are unfaithful it has through running on quality any backlinks pointing with internet webinternet pages that have simply backlinks to your site fitted, virtually not any text-based content of any valid importance. Internet websites as soon as possible started to be commonly called "link harvesting" and therefore were put to use just with online businesses to raise the particular grade of the company's

    Furthermore apply, website sometimes formed only
    at least one single article precisely to house reciprocal urls termed as a

    virtually not any realistic material. Oftentimes, reciprocal links had been possibly perhaps
    still transaction anywhere from webweb internet web-web pages
    which had not a point meaning to one another extremely.
    Therefore, using a healthy urls internet site you might find a hyperlink
    towards a squeaky toy vehicle web pages in the event the hosting the anchor text revolved around
    the ageing. The following of course generated certainly basically
    little awareness that will prize this behind the

    The internet was initially one of the initial primary google and

    mixture of variations to see the the majority website visitors
